Hello again, Las Vegas. My fourth and final trip to Sin City in 2017 was for Amazon Web Services's big customer and partner hoedown, re:Invent.

During the late November conference, I practiced two of the Seven Deadly Sins: 1. Gluttony at the hotel food court while staying up late writing articles, and 2. Envy for people who were not in Las Vegas.

But I shouldn't complain. Las Vegas has a certain insane charm as a conference location. Everything is accessible, although you have to run the gauntlet of slot machines to get where you're going. And there's plenty of weirdness to occupy the eye.

About the Author(s)

Mitch Wagner

Executive Editor, Light Reading

San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.

He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.

Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.

Beats: Software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), IP networking, and colored foods (such as 'green rice').
